Old Stuff Day is all about…well, old stuff. Bits and bobs that have been gathering dust for ages in your home, trinkets, and toys up in the attic, antiques and old electronics – you’re bound to have some old stuff knocking about. And today is all about appreciating it. Because what’s better than uncovering something really awesome from days gone by? It’s so easy to let things gather dust. If we don’t use them every day, some things can get pushed to the side and stay there. And that’s not just the things in your home – technology advances so quickly, new toys come out all the time, new books are constantly being published. In the age of new information, it isn’t easy to stay mindful of what built the foundations for what we have now. Today is all about remembering the things we sometime

The idea for ‘Dress in Blue Day’ was originally come up with by Anita Mitchell, a stage IV colon cancer survivor who had lost a close friend and her own father to the disease. Greatly saddened by the fact that both of those tragedies could have been prevented, Ms. Mitchell saw a need to bring greater awareness to a cancer not many people wanted to discuss. So, in 2006, she worked with her children’s school to coordinate a recognition day. That very year in March, students who normally had to wear uniforms to class were allowed to wear a blue outfit of their choice, if only they made a $1 donation to colon cancer awareness. There have been some hopes to turn all of March, and not just the first Friday of the month, blue by promoting colon cancer awareness all month long, much like Nation

On March 2nd every year, it’s time to celebrate cream pie – banana cream pie, to be precise. On this day, pie lovers in the United States raise a spoon to one of the most popular sweet treats in the country. And if you want to join in with your own banana cream pie, don’t worry – there’s no law that says you have to share! The History of Banana Cream Pie Day A cream pie is very much what its name suggests – if you buy one or make one, you’ll usually be getting a thin shortcrust pastry filled past the crust with thick creamy custard. On top is usually a thick layer of whipped cream, and depending on the chef it might be topped with coconut, nuts, or dusted with sugar or chocolate. The creamy custard pudding which makes up its center is similar to creme patisserie, the main part of many

There’s a task amongst your employees that requires a certain skill set, an incredibly ability to identify what’s needed and when, and to know every square inch of your store like the back of their hand. They have to be able to discern the needs of your customers when the customers themselves don’t even know and point them in the right direction when the customers are violating that most important of policies “The customer is always right”. Salesperson Day is dedicated to celebrating these intrepid souls and their ability to navigate the hellish pit that is… retail. History of Salesperson Day Salespersons have an incredibly difficult job and are often the employee that does the most foot-miles per day around the store they work in. They know every product, every nook and cranny, and e

There’s a lot of talk about what the most important part of your business is. There’s an argument to be made that, when you’re first starting out, the most important part of your business is your customers. After all, they’re the ones that patronize your business, use your services and products, and ultimately ensure that you’re successful at days end. Once a company has grown past a certain point, however, customers begin to have a contender for most important. When you have to hire employees to manage the extra business you can no longer handle alone, it’s time to recognize that Employee Appreciation Day was established for one reason. Without your employees, there’s no one to service your customers, which means you can’t keep your doors open. History of Employee Appreciation Day Emp
